A Simple Lesson on Learning

                                                   Giving yourself the best.
 At Feldenkrais class last night, our teacher (Lauren McLeod) talked a little about the requirements for learning.  Be comfortable, she said.  If your body is in discomfort, your mind will be occupied with that.  If your body is at ease, your mind will be relaxed and open to new information.
~Are you hungry?
~Are you  tired?
~Seated in a good position?
~Good light and temperature?
~Minimal distractions?
~Emotionally calm?
These points are important for children too.  Optimize your child's homework/study environment as best you can to offer the best chance for successful learning.
